Lakers, Jose Calderon exploring buyout

Lakers, Jose Calderon exploring buyout

Calderon is slated to become an unrestricted free agent after attempting to be bought out by his current team in the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to terms on a buyout with Jose Calderon, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical and later made official by the team.

Calderon and the Lakers will need to finalize the buyout by Wednesday as that is the last day that players can be released and maintain their playoff eligibility. Weber, who signed two 10-day contracts with Golden State, was informed of his release by Warriors coach Steve Kerr following Saturday's 112-95 win over the Nets, most likely to make room on the roster for Calderon. The Lakers have no reason to play Calderon as they look to play their younger guys.

According to Bleacher Report's Ric Bucher, the Dubs would prefer to sign Calderon over former Golden State center Andrew Bogut if given the choice.

Fowler entered the 18th hole with a comfortable lead, but he managed to put an exclamation point on his excellent round. Asked if that four-shot advantage is enough, Fowler said with a smile, "I'd like to have 10 ... or more".

It's not an ideal spot for the first-ever WWE Universal champion, but a realistic possibly if there's nothing for him to do. TJ Perkins match (taped for the March 22 episode), Nakamura was attacked by Andrade "Cien" Almas and Bobby Roode.

Calderon only appeared in 24 games this season, starting 11, and only averaging 3.3 points per game with the Lakers.

For Calderon, the move allows the veteran point guard to join a contending team and compete for an National Basketball Association championship. He averaged 3.3 points and 2.1 assists per contest while shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc.

On the other hand, I think this would be a great move for the Warriors especially given the injury history between Steph Curry and Shaun Livingston.
